I am going to check in to this hotel tomorrow for a softball. Today our plans changed just a bit and we decided to bring our young daughter with us. Originally I booked a king room thinking it would only be my husband and I so I was dreading making the call to the hotel to see if I could... More

I was attracted by the rate, but the recent reviews were decent too, so I checked it out. The greeting was welcoming, the bed clean and comfortable. It is located close to the 470 bypass, but there was no noise problem. Besides it is close to the Mall and lots of other shopping and eating sites. I will stay there... More

Nothing fancy, but clean, quiet, extremely friendly staff. Close to restaurants. Good breakfast. Pleasant, economic stop. There's not much to Topeka...this was a convenience stop for us. The staff, location, and price were just right.

The hotel has recently changed management and now offers excellent value for money. The room was big and clean as was the pool and spa facilities. The management and staff could not of been more helpful and even let us do some washing. We have travelled 16000 miles in 4months and this is by far one of the best hotels... More

This hotel recently changed a name to Econo Lodge & so is a new ownership & management. The rooms are big & clean. They have huge breakfast area & they serve hot breakfast which is pretty rare for a econo lodge. We enjoyed their indoor pool/spa. This is probably a best econo lodge property within miles & miles.

My husband, 18 month old daughter, and I stayed in a king room for a week and the price was $364.00. This was very cheap compared to many other hotels we checked. To my surprise the room was very large, the bed was very comfortable, and the hot tub was the best we have ever used. The hotel is locked... More

The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly. However, I had stained sheets and the room I was in had a mold smell. It was too the point that it caused headaches. It was no where near what I was expecting. It was not worth the stay for the price I paid. I could of stayed at the... More

This place stunk and was filthy, had ashes and beer caps left in our clean room. Sink was falling out of the bathroom counter. This hotel should charge no more the 49.00 dollars a night for the kind of room we received. Do yourself a favor and book elsewhere.
